Microsoft's Azure goes TITSUP PLANET-WIDE AGAIN in cloud FAIL
Microsoft suffered a major outage on its cloud service Azure overnight.
It went titsup just before 1am UK time, and services are only now slowly returning to normal.
Microsoft confessed that multiple regions were affected by the "service interruption".
Customers around the world using Azure storage, virtual machines, a number of SQL products and Active Directory, among other services, were sucker-punched by the lengthy outage.
By 7am UK time this morning, Microsoft claimed to have revived its cloud platform.
The service interruption impacting Azure Services is now resolved. Updates here http://t.co/r2YkZMDYye— Microsoft Azure (@Azure) November 19, 2014
It's the second major outage to have hit Redmond's Azure service in the past three months. In August, it had a similar sit-down, much to the frustration of MS customers. ®
